MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee judge says a trial should proceed in the case of two police officers wounded by guns that a dealership allegedly sold to criminals.
Badger Guns and its predecessor, Badger Outdoors, failed to convince Circuit Judge Michael Goulee to throw out civil allegations against them.
Goulee ruled Monday that a lawsuit from Milwaukee officer Jose Lopez and former officer Alejandro Arce should keep moving forward. Both victims were wounded in a 2007 shooting incident with weapons that investigators said were traced to Badger Guns.
Two other wounded Milwaukee police officers -- Graham Kunisch and Bryan Norberg -- filed a similar and separate lawsuit that's scheduled to have a trial in September.
